Em has moved her dog pile skills to the next level. She will now dog pile any unsuspecting subject.... or ladybug chair.. whatever she deems necessary!
Em has dropped her afternoon nap for sure now. She is now just taking 1 nap around 11 o'clock.
She is becoming more and more brave, taking steps on her own now. But she is quick to grab on to our hand to continue her journey! She still loves to walk with her walking wagon toy. To change directions she picks the wagon up, turns in the direction she wants to go in and puts the wagon back down continuing on her merry way.
I finally gave in and started to walk on my own!!! Mom and dad have really been trying to get me to walk without holding their hand for a couple weeks now and today I decided I would do it. I took off!!!! First I walked from the couch to the foot prop piece of furniture. I then walked to the chair where I was rocked to sleep many times as a young girl. I then walked all over the living room!!
Prior to that feat I made my first visit to a lake. I wanted to get in the water so bad yet Mom wouldn't let me. She said I didn't have a bathing suit. I usually bathe in my birthday suit so I'm not quite sure what a bathing suit is??
Watching all the big kids swim
Brad worked today so Em and I had a girls day! Our first stop was to watch Madison Central High School play in the state championship softball game! One of the senior high girls in the youth group plays so we went out to support. I"m not quite sure how they did due to having to leave before the game ended. We made a pit stop by the park and this little boy poked Em in the eye and then pulled her hair!! Momma bear came out. The little boys dad was there and did nothing. I know you can not stop kids from doing things like this but at least tell him to stop. Alas, we then did a little shopping followed by a early dinner and early bath time.
Me and Pip went to church. Em didn't show off her walking skills in the nursery. I guess she is keeping this a secret!
After church we went to a baby shower. Em loved crawling on this animal print rug. She would go back and forth until I finally had to pick her up and leave due to melt down that was brewing. In her defense it was nap time! We went home for a short nap then went to the park. At the park Em wanted to take everything out of the diaper bag and then reload the diaper bag. She did this all afternoon!
We got home and played a little more followed by more outside time.... in a diaper. In my defense, when we got home from the park Pip was hot so I took her dress off. She then wanted to go outside yet it was soo close to supper time so I just opted to put her shoes on and let her go in her diaper. Oh well, I guess it is summer time!
Me, mom and dad went to the park today and I met a few new friends! One little boy was named Jack, so I said "hi jack" all day. I slept on the way home from the park because I was soo tired from playing.
Guess who came today when I got back from the park?? Granna came to visit me!! She is staying the whole week so she can play with me and then we will all go to Dad's graduation on Friday!
Dear Sydney, Your tactics worked! I woke up several times during the night and you were right!!! Granna played with me all night long!! I even had two different suppers. Supper one was chicken and rice and supper two was pork chops and rice!!
Thanks for the advice but I think I'll sleep tonight because I am tired!
Love , Cousin Emma
We all slept in this morning. In the afternoon mom and Granna brought me to the park. I showed Granna how I like to empty my diaper bag. She got a kick out of that one!
Em slept really well last night. I think Brad and Granna were very happy about the new sleeping habits!
After I woke up today we went shopping for a few clothing items and then Granna wanted to get Em and Syd some books for our upcoming beach trip. We got a few books then came home for more play!
Em has found a new favorite food: cherries. She eats these with every meal now!
I also think Em is growing right now. She is eating more than I eat every day!
Thanking Granna for my new books.
